Shower Favors Under $1

I found bride-gown shaped favor boxes at the dollar store.

Since our party is a fiesta these white bridal favors needed some color.

They came in packs of ten for $1.

Highlighter allows the grey printed details of the dress to show through.

We colored them with highlighters.

The tabs were easy to fit together to form a box shape.

The boxes were formed with interior tabs.

Charlie agreed to taste test a ring pop.

Each box held one ring pop.

There was only room in the box for one ring pop.

One staple held together the box together and then it was decoratively tied with gossamer ribbon that accompanied the boxes.

We’ll mix-up the colors on a display shelf and hand them out as ladies exit the party.

Cute, huh?

Do you have an inexpensive, go-to party favor?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
